On Friday 5th April we open our doors again after an exciting refurbishment of our bar, dining space, and kitchen, as well as an extension project. We can't wait to throw open the original front door to the pub, and invite you in for a pint.

The Kitchen

As part of the refurbishment we have extended our kitchen into an area of unused garden, knocking down an internal wall, and adding some much needed space. This will create a great working environment for our kitchen team. Not only will Head Chef, Steve, have much more room to get creative, there is also a wall of windows with a view over the garden.

The Club Room, our private dining and event space, adjoins the kitchen and will also benefit with a window showing the chefs at work, making the guest experience more immersive.

The Bar

When the pub opened, under the name The King's Head, back in 1891, the door to the right of the building, leading onto the street, was the main entrance into the bar. This is being reinstated and internal walls knocked through to create a more open-plan bar area with larger surface space and stools to gather for a drink - or two.

The Barn

One of the most noticeable features is the extension to the side of the pub. The flint and timber-framed barn is in-keeping with the village, and incorporates the old flint wall adjoining the pub.

The extension adds dining space, allowing for a more relaxed space around the bar. It will also be light and airy with views over the village green, which is a great backdrop for any summer occasions.

The Bedrooms

In the main building, our eight bedrooms are available to book once now. These have been freshened up, with some new furniture in areas and a lick of paint.

However, the most exciting prospect are the eight bedrooms being created with the addition of the new barn style building to the back of the pub. This is still a work-in-progress that will be opening in summer!
